5 Worst Decisions from Week 9 in the NFL

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterOctober 20, 2016

Another week, another parade of questionable decision making around the NFL.

While it's no surprise to see Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur included, it's a bit of a surprise to have to talk about Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. However, in the wake of his mind-numbingly bad decision to run a fake field goal rather than either a) try to pound the ball for a yard with his running game that had been imposing its will on the Giants all game long or b) simply kick the field goal and tie the game late in the second half, the Steelers found a way to win the game anyway.

In the video above, I look at a collection of bad decisions made by head coaches and players—both on the field and, in the case of guy in particular, off the field. 

Let us know in the comments below whether you agree or disagree. Feel free to point out if there were any extremely bad decisions I might have missed.
